|Full name of work:||Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor, BWV 582|
|Composer:||Bach, Johann Sebastian (1685-1750), German|
|Name of file creator:||Hicks, Grant|
|e-mail address:||ghicks02 "at" sprynet "dot" com|
|Comments:||One of Bach's greatest organ works. The Passacaglia is a set of 20 continuous variations on an 8-bar ostinato theme first stated in the pedal. The Fugue is in 4 voices and is based on the first half of the passacaglia theme.|
Based on the notation "cembalo e pedale" in the manuscript, some have contended that the work was intended not for organ but for pedal harpsichord.
